And now, a note from your horror hostess: "Hello Darlings, it's little ol' me - The One Who Puts The “FEAR” in Fierce, Mistress Azrael, The Frida Cinema’s Own Demon Darling of Drag! I’m very excited to welcome you to my new monthly event Midsummer Frights! I will be hosting each spooktacular show, Undead & In Person, and promise a full Evening to Dismember jam-packed with tricks n' treats, a Fangtastic Floorshow by yours cruelly, special guests, audience participation, ghoulish games, and of course a Killer feature film with a Meat & Greet Mixer to follow!"
Greetings, my friend. We are all interested in the future, for that is where you and I are going to spend the rest of our lives. And remember my friend, future events such as these will affect you in the future. You are interested in the unknown... the mysterious. The unexplainable. That is why you are here. And now, for the first time, we are bringing to you, the full story of what happened on that fateful day. We are bringing you all the evidence, based only on the secret testimony, of the miserable souls, who survived this terrifying ordeal. The incidents, the places. My friend, we cannot keep this a secret any longer. Let us punish the guilty. Let us reward the innocent. My friend, can your heart stand the shocking facts of grave robbers from outer space?...
“J. Hoberman of the Village Voice has made a case for Wood as an unconscious avant-gardist; there's no denying that his blunders are unusually creative and oddly expressive.” (David Kehr, Chicago Reader)
“Far too entertaining to be considered as the very worst film ever made.” (Phil Hall, Film Threat)
